Holy Smoke!

WLD sink holesDespite being completely rubbish at golf, I reckon I could get a hole-in-one just about every time at the Top of the Rock Golf Course in Branson, Missouri, USA.

The reason for my bold boast is that at this particular golf course, four large sink holes have opened up, and as the largest of these holes is 25 metres (85 feet) wide and 10 metres deep; I think even I could pop in a hole-in-one.

Experts think that the holes were caused when large amounts of water washed through the bedrock under the course, flushing out huge gaps in the rock which then opened up to the surface.

One expert who was interviewed by the US media said that it could happen, especially if there are further vertical gaps in the bedrock and more water flows though.

That is one divot that is going to take a little bit more than ‘flapping over and treading down!’
